Art Overview

The Departments of Arts and Humanities, and Social Science offer curricula which give TMCC students a broad perspective of the world of knowledge while providing specific pre-professional curriculum sequences which may qualify the student for admission as a junior at the college to which he/she will transfer. Courses in these departments offer specific knowledge of Indian people, particularly the Turtle Mountain Chippewa. An Associate of Arts degree is awarded upon completion of the general education courses and the basic curriculum.

Suggested Curricula

The following curricula are suggested as aids in program planning and may be modified by the student in order to meet specific requirements of the intended four-year program at a university. Each student is urged to consult with an academic advisor early in his/her freshman year to plan an entire TMCC program with reference to a specific four-year program at a university. An Associate of Arts Degree is awarded upon the completion of the basic curriculum leading to an Associate of Arts degree.
